A native of New Orleans and long-time resident of Baton Rouge, Pam Kelly Sills was educated at Newcomb College, Tulane University, Yale University’s prestigious Norfolk School of Music and Art, and she received an MFA from the University of New Orleans.  She has taught drawing, painting and art history at the University of New Orleans, Delgado Community College, and at several New Orleans preparatory schools.  She has also been a guest lecturer at the New Orleans Museum of Art.


Sills began exhibiting professionally in St. Louis in the mid-seventies.  Since then, her work has been shown in numerous group, competitive, invitational and one-person exhibitions.  She is represented by the Degas Gallery in New Orleans. 

Her work is included in many private and public and corporate collections.  These include The Arts Council of New Orleans, The Atlantic Richfield (ARCO) Center for the Visual Arts, Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, City Club Incorporated in Miami, Florida, Freeport-McMoran Company Incorporated New Orleans, Marriott Marquis Hotel, Atlanta, Pan American Life Center, Pan Pacific Singapore, and the Stouffer Waverly, Atlanta.


Her paintings involve the spectator with lessons learned from the achievement of others, as well as her own experiences and discoveries.  Her work continues to reference nature-lush landscapes, and botanical imagery.  It owes much to the examples of Cezanne and Matisse, as well as more contemporary sources including Hodgkin and Hockney.  Sills' paintings are about tension and about how one experiences nature through color, form, and space.
